Hey Ross...you are exactly right about those females gettin and and out quickly on bedding areas. I'll bet 95% of the bigger gills I catch during the spawn are males. Most of he big fish we see are almost always males, and we catch some of the larger females in the deeper outskirts next to bedding areas.
You caught 3 bluegills.... 1lb 8 oz, 1 lb 11 oz and 1 lb 13 oz! That's trophy bluegills! I respect your sercet lake but I like to know what you use? Live bait or lure? Deep water or spawn area? Thanks for your time!
